Last week gave away a kool laptop bag and I had several comments how nice it would be if the give-a-way was for a laptop backpack rather than a std bag. Well I respect my readers comments (& I had some Amazon credits left over) and got this puppy – Targus Brilliance II Laptop Backpack!

So today you can have a chance to win it and naturally, attached to it, the even more valuable and uber-kool DeltaPoints luggage tag (have you seen what these are going for on ebay – gezzzz?!?)


Now the rules are this. You have to comment below and tell me what you are doing this weekend for a chance to win! I will be watching the Masters both on TV and on the web. You? – Rene


EDIT:  we have a winner – thanks for reading the blog!
